Conversations in the Disciplines

The University Writing Program announces its annual roundtable conversations about faculty research and writing practices. Professors from diverse disciplines at DU will each give brief informal presentations about recent research projects, their research methods,a nd their writing approaches. A moderator will ask a few questions, then open the floor to audience members. The event will be particularly useful to students in WRIT 1133, 1633, or 1733, but the entire campus community is welcome.
